We finished our Christmas fun by opening presents at home on Christmas morning. Brandon got a Donkey Kong Wii game from Santa because Santa figured that it was close enough to a Mario game that Brandon might like it. Brandon didn’t really ask for much so Santa had a hard time shopping.
Jordan asked Santa for a karaoke machine and Santa found her one with disco lights. She was a very, very happy girl. My in-laws bought her the latest Taylor Swift CD and I’ve heard “We Are Never Getting Back Together” at least thirty seven billion times. It’s a good thing she’s really cute.
Alexis wanted nothing but clothes and shoes this year. She wanted it all from a specific store too. Justice! Everything had to be neon and sparkly. Trust me, I’ll never lose her in a crowded place! I think it’s really fun that she’s developing a sense of style.
That was our Christmas… insanely busy, full of loving family, and absolutely fun! You know, the usual around here.
Today is January 1st and you know what that means! Time for resolutions, hangovers, and regret? Nope. Time for the Scraptastic Club January 2013 reveal! (You can do all of that other stuff later if you want.)
Exclusive January 2013 stamps designed by Heather Landry. (Me?! By the way, I’m still pinching myself over that.)
I hope you all have a very happy New Year filled with blessings and good things. I’m planning a very positive New Year with only one resolution.
My resolution is to not curse as much. It’s really not my #$%* fault. I learned from the best. Most of my family members growing up cursed like sailors, and they still do. The issue with that… I don’t want my kids cussing. There was a bit of an incident at Christmas dinner at my in-law’s house where Jordan cursed really loudly. Sure, it was completely inappropriately hilarious. She’s never done anything like that before. The more I thought about it, I got really bothered because she’s learning it from us. I don’t want to contribute to that. Wish me luck! I’m going to need it.
